The Hul le Kes Rodin Shirt is a comfortable and oversized garment for every kind of occasion. This garment is made of 100% upcycled cotton bedlinen. At our Manufacturing Studio we search for the best pieces to use for this upcycling process, an intensive but satisfying task. By upcycling old materials we make sure to extend each fabric’s lifecycle to the fullest.

This Hul le Kes Rodin Shirt is part of our classics. It is a perfect shirt year-round with a slightly oversized fit and a perfect conversation piece on every occasion. The gathering at the back and sleeves are inspired by centuries old workwear of artists. Each panel of the shirt is made from another upcycled cotton bedding. That way each part of the garment is slightly different in its quality and texture. Our Rodin Shirt comes in all of our sizes from 0 to 5, have a look at the sizing tab below for more information about the Hul le Kes sizing.

Next to this version we also offer this upcylced Rodin Shirt in Plant Green, Flowers Yellow, Madder Pink and White.

Nothing is a waste of time if you use the experience wisely
Auguste René Rodin

The shirt bears the name of Parisian sculptor Auguste Rodin (1840 – 1917). A traditionally schooled sculptor who approaches his work like a craftsman. One of his most famous works is Le Penseur (The Thinker). A bronze nude male figure sitting on a rock, his chin resting on his hand. Besides Rodin’s sculptures, his personal workwear is a great inspiration when designing Hul le Kes garments.

Quality

This garment is made from old bedding fabrics, after making it has been dyed with our natural dyes. The beddings that are used are made of 100% cotton and collected via our recycling partners or via donations people have made. The garment is dyed with Acacia extracts, otherwise known as Catechu, which gives these various shades of light browns.

Each panel comes from a different kind of bedding. That makes that the quality may differ and also the color differs on each panel. This makes each garment unique and shows you the beauty of imperfection.

At our Manufacturing Studio we have selected the best parts of these beddings, cleaned it and started the puzzle of combining the remaining parts from several beddings together. In some cases our Recovery Studio will make small repairs to the old material to make sure we can upcycle as much materials as possible.
